TULSA, Okla. — If you plan on celebrating the new year away from home, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol wants you to get home safely.

Across the state, the OHP ENDUI team will partner with other law enforcement agencies to conduct DUI checkpoints and provide extra patrols. This is all part of the national Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over effort.

OHP officials said additional deputies, troopers, and officers will be on duty looking for impaired drivers.

Last year around New Years, there were 148 crashes on the roads alone in Oklahoma, according to OHP officials. Two of those crashes killed two people and at least 24 of them were alcohol or drug-related.
